L’Amor sacro che calpesta l’Amor profano del Montalto per la chiesa di San Domenico a Cremona
Ebook format Pdf readable on these devices:
The essay aims to offer a new reading of the canvas known as L’Amor sacro che calpesta l’Amor profano (Milan, Superti Furga collection) – a youthful work painted by Giovanni Stefano Danedi known as Montalto – after the discovering of the preparatory drawing and of a painting entitled Amor vincit omnia (Perugia, antiques market). Thanks to the study of two manuscripts related to the destroyed church of San Domenico in Cremona, it is possible to propose a different destination for the painting, before its arrival in the collection of the Counts Durini at the beginning of the eighteenth century, testifying the fortune that paintings of the same genre enjoyed in seventeenth-century Spanish Lombardy.
